Dirt Craft Natural Building will be teaching a one-week straw bale comprehensive workshop from Sunday, August 11th to Saturday, August 17th, 2013 out at Woodland West, near Millarville, AB. We’ll be closing in a post and mean round wood, roundhouse with straw bales, incorporating natural plaster skins from clay collected from the area.
This course will be of interest to anyone seriously considering building a straw bale house that incorporates a large percentage of clay in the finishes (including the renders, finished paints and plasters, and earthen floors). It will be well suited to owner-builders wishing to build a home using the latest straw bale techniques, with an approach that is cost effective, energy efficient, and accessible to people of all skill levels.
